Disney Developing Live Action Chip ‘n’ Dale Movie

Disney is developing a live action film that will star its animated chipmunks Chip ‘n’ Dale.

Project will serve as an origin story for the Rescue Rangers, a team of detectives and crime fighters that also includes the mic Gadget Hackwrench and Monterey Jack and fly, Zipper.

The film is in early development with commercials director Rob Rugan writing the script, sources confirmed to Variety. Rugan, who is attached to direct “Genies” at Paramount, is also adapting book series “The Genius Files” at Warner Bros.

Muppets Most Wanted”-producer Mandeville Films and Television’s David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman will produce.

Project is essentially Disney’s version of Sony’s “Smurfs,” Fox’s “Alvin and the Chipmunks” and “Garfield” films, which inject cartoon characters into live action settings.

Disney first introduced Chip ‘n’ Dale in 1943 through animated short films.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.
